Cat problem! Peeing... but not in the box.?

My cat pees and pees and pees. But he's not peeing in the litter box. I understand that he is getting old and he probably can't control where he is peeing or when he pees. The litter box really doesn't have as much pee in it then usual. Is there anything I can do? Thanks! Hope you have a good answer.

You should take him to the vet. Urinating outside the litter box can be a sign of an underlying health issue such as urinary tract infection, diabetes, or kidney problems. They will need to do a urinalysis. They may need to do blood work to make a diagnosis. If after ruling out other conditions the problem persists it could be behavioral or feline idiopathic cystitis, which can be a real problem to solve b/c the cause isn't actually known yet. You could try Feliway spray and plug ins, it is supposed to release cat pheromones to help relax a stressed or anxious cat and is recommended for urinary behavioral issues. Good luck
If you haven't yet, please get him to a vet. Urinating outside the litter box can be a sign of a urinary tract infection, or something even more serious, like kidney failure. Sometimes a cat associates pain with urinating in the litter box, so he doesn't want to use it.

Urinary incontinence is a possible problem, as well, but a far less common one.
he could have a urinary track infection. and you need to get him fixed, but if he is fixed than it is probably the urinary track infection. its common in cats.
Take him to the vet. My dog did that and it turned out he had diabetes but he's fine because he has medicine and stuff. But take your cat to the vet. But he might just be getting old.
